When your account holder dies, there are usually many aspects of their life still outstanding.

We'll look at the checks and all the questions you get asked every day. Insurance checks, treasury checks and regular checks, what are you supposed to do and what can you do to help the account holder and his or her family? What if there will be no official estate account?

 This program is a must for all who work the front line.

Topics Will Include:

  • How many days can I pay checks my customer wrote after death?
  • How to handle treasury checks after death.
  • What happens to customer's funds on social security representative payee accounts?
  • Who can negotiate a check after death made payable to the customer?
  • What documentation do we need to prove someone can act for decedent?
  • Can the spouse endorse checks for decedent?
  • Who can negotiate checks "To the Family of John Doe"?
  • And many other questions you get asked daily at the death of an account holder.
